The Lynx

by Michel Corday & André Couvreur
adapted by Brian Stableford

Short Stories

The Lynx (1911) is notable as one of the earliest significant treatments of telepathy. It represents a point in the evolution of the genre when it became possible to discuss the alteration of human nature in the context of a suspenseful thriller.

Here, Mirande must use the serum to thwart the schemes of Dr. Castellan, a powerful villain, although the odds are stacked against him.

Michel Corday was the author of The Eternal Flame; André Couvreur that of the Dr. Caresco and Professor Tornada novels, all published by Black Coat Press. The Lynx is one of the
most interesting marriages of minds within the genre
